About my oddball doublebass,I failed to mention in my last message about string selection,that the stings really slap against the fingerboard when I pizz hard,which is most of time. Besides strings with more tension,I want to replace the nut;mine has had the grooves cut way too deep. Is it possible to buy a nut from Englehardt,file new grooves,and glue it on myself? Also,the tailpiece is connected to the endpin with a length of bailing wire-would a wire hanger from Englehardt work? What role does the tailpiece play in terms of sound and action? Perhaps I could replace it.
